Project description: L'Amazone Érogène
The project L’Amazone Érogène is named after a monumental installation created by Prune Nourry in January 2021 and displayed under the central skylights of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, in Paris. The piece staged a swarm of arrows pointing towards a breast-shaped target, as well as a gigantic evocative bow. Playing with the typical symbols of the mythological figure of the Amazon, a female warrior, Prune Nourry offered a striking metaphor of breast cancer. From death, life may arise: the work of art also materialized the potentiality of procreation. The artist is a breast cancer survivor.
Outside in the windows, Prune presented a sequence of displays inspired by the geometrical works of American minimalist artists, playing with perspective and the accumulation of the exhibition's primary object: the arrow.
